Look at this tulip after the rain. It is a beauty, I think. I love going out when rain stopped and nature shows its beautiful flowers and plants after the refreshment from the sky.
Have a nice and sunny weekend and thank you for your critics

Lindas cores, bom foco e detalhes muito agradáveis aos olhos, Rose. Gostei do enquadramento e do desfoque do fundo. Ademais, boa apresentação, amiga. Meus parabéns!

Ja, diese Blume zeigt ausgezeichnet, wie das Wetter bei uns und in Deutschland ist, sehr schoen gemacht, die Tulpe ist scharf und ein bisschen traurig ...

Wow, what a (wet) beauty you have spotted on a rainy day, Rose!

The sharpness and POV are well done, and the clarity among the shot is perfect. The green blurry BG adds great contrast to the red tulip, where the droplets are appearing to be diamonds to me.

Thanks for such a wonderful work!

Liebe Grüße

HI Rose,
A wonderful wet-look tulip widely opened to hold such crystal clear droplets caressing its stamen and colorful heart.
Yes, I agree with you, it's a beauty. Nature is like that!
Splendid colors and good lighting.
Very sharp and neat.
My best regards,

Francis Xavier

Hi Rose,

I agree it is a beauty. Although the rain attempted to defeat the tulip, it still prevails. I love the rich colors and contrasts in this well done floral macro. Very sharp, the water droplets are nicely defined while the background is nicely blurred. Ein ganz schoenes bild!

Warm regards,

This is a beautiful and full of joy shot.

Sharpness is where it has to be, in the center of the flower (maybe a bit further...).

f/5.6 is enough to get that soft nice bokeh.
I am also a Pentax user and really happy with it.

Nice white frame to enhance purity and the red line in the inner side is a cool wink.
